Keeping Kids Safe at the Calgary Stampede

Lost Kid PhotoThe Calgary Stampede provides 10 days of family-friendly entertainment for the community to enjoy. But, with so many people flocking to the city and so much activity on the grounds, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. To provide your family with some peace of mind as you celebrate the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, we’re pleased to once again offer the ATCO Lost Kids Program. 

Since 1993, we’ve helped reunite lost children with their parents. The ATCO Lost Kids program sets up booths at every entrance of the Stampede grounds and provides children with bright wristbands that their parents can write their contact information on. Parents are also given an information card with the phone number and directions to the ATCO Lost Kids Centre.

The well-trained and friendly Lost Kids Patrol team surveys the grounds and escorts unattended children to the ATCO Lost Kids Centre. This specially-equipped ATCO trailer features toys and activities to help settle children’s nerves while their parents are contacted and they wait to be reunited.

Each year, dozens of our people volunteer for a ‘Day of Caring’ on Calgary Stampede’s Kids’ Day. Our volunteers operate the ATCO Lost Kids booths throughout the grounds and provide much-needed help to the Lost Kids Patrol, ensuring the tens of thousands of families who come through the gates receive wristbands and program information. This year, Kids’ Day is on Wednesday, July 11.
